The style is spine and tips(diagonally) done in leather, balance in marbled green/tan paper, pastedowns and endsheets are heavy cream tone stock. Printing data on volume 1 "Printed for Thomas Ward in the Inner-Temple lane-1724." the collector has penciled, on the first pastedown, "2 vols, first edition, RCTY" (sic). Book commences with title page, verso blank, 1 page advertisement to reader, verso blank, 5 leaves(10pages) of subscriber names, followed by a TOC numbered from 827 to 836. Following this the actual text begins at page 1 with a 4 page preface followed by text numbered to 826. After this 10 leaves(20 pages) of index, last of which is a "Proposal" advertisement. Reviewing the text for flaws beyond the customary waviness and age darkening, some light staining of text upper areas is noted at 1st page of TOC, some smudge elsewhere noted, no noting in text seen (excepting old owner name under title title page) wonderfully legible, no dog ear seen.Volume 2 printing data, "Printed for the editor by Joseph Downing in Bartholomew-Close and Henry Woodfall in the Strand-1734."

The entirity of the upper text is also affected, same, but more mildly so. This darkens again at the end of the work. A similar stain affects the lower back pages. Also the piece has more fleck, smudge and corrected dog era than its brother, yet, spendid in its considerable age. Both items text edges have much edge darkening but a clean, unsmudged appearance.Looking at the exteriors they seem fine, excepting volume one which has 2 tiny imperfections where the paper meets the spine leather. one is a tiny chip out, pencil eraser size, and a tiny upper area ripple.

Mehrentheils aus geschriebenen Urkunden und Jahr-Büchern zusammen getragen von Francsisci Wokenii. 1732./

      Stettin. Gottfried Conradi.1724.. Erste Auflage. 2 Bücher in 1 Bd. 21 x 17 cm. 157 S., 5 Bll., 264 S. Original Halbpergamenteinband mit marm. Vorder- und Hinterdeckel mit marm. Buchschnitt. Leichte Gebrauchsspuren. Etw. bestoß. Zwei Ecken etw. beschädigt.. Christian Zickermann (27. Dezember 1672 in Wollin (Pommern) - Mai 1726) war ein deutscher evangelischer Pfarrer und Geschichtsforscher. Er schrieb über die Geschichte Pommerns. Zickermann wurde 1672 in der Stadt Wollin in Pommern als Sohn eines Schusters geboren. Er besuchte das Stettiner Regium Gymnasium Carolinum und studierte an der Universität Rostock, der Universität Frankfurt an der Oder und der Universität Greifswald. Anschließend arbeitete er als Hauslehrer in adligen Familien, dann als Feldprediger in dem Regiment Graf Mellin. Als Feldprediger erlebte Zickermann im Jahre 1713 die Belagerung Stettins, das damals zu Schwedisch-Pommern gehörte, durch russische Truppen. Die am 28. September 1713 erfolgte, achtstündige Beschließung der Stadt beschreibt er so: " Es war, als ob Himmel und Erde vergehen wollten, und viele, die auswärts gedient und die größten Belagerungen und Bombardements mitgemacht hatten, vesicherten, so etwas nie gehört zu haben ". Im Jahre 1714 wurde Zickermann zum Pastor an der Stettiner Peter-Paulskirche berufen. Im gleichen Jahr heiratete er; aus der Ehe gingen zwei Söhne und fünf Töchter hervor. Zickermann starb im mai 1726. Zum 600. Jahrestag der Gründung der Stettiner Peter-Paulskirche durch Otto von Bamberg veröffentlichte Zickerkmann ein Buch über die Bekehrung Pommerns und die Geschichte der Peter-Paulskirche. Dieses bekannteste Werk Zickermanns ist nach den Urteil des Historikers Gottfried von Bülow aus dem Jahre 1900 " auch heute noch brauchbar ".

        Nova Anglia Septentrionali Americae implantata.

      Nuremberg 1724 - Fine original wash color; a crease, few faint stains, else excellent. An excellent, original-colored example of one of the few collectible maps of the Northeast of the early 18th century. This attractive work is an interesting blend of older, Dutch sources and more recent English ones. The map shows that as the number of English settlements increased in the area, Native American tribal names are notably less plentiful than on Dutch maps of the previous century. Nonetheless, the attractive cartouche shows a European bartering with an Indian for an animal pelt, one of the mainstays of the early New England economy. The cartouche also reveals what the European was offering for trade, including beads, a barrel (presumably filled with liquor), guns, hatchets, tools, and textiles. The cartography of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket is still quite distorted, but the coast of Maine is well detailed. Curiously, the map shows a strait in Cape Cod connecting Cape Cod Bay and Nantucket Sound in the area of Eastham and Wellfleet. Historical accounts and early maps and charts indicate that there existed a water passage in this area from the mid-17th to the first part of the 18th century. New Jersey is divided into East and West Jersey on the map. McKorkle, B. New England in Early Printed Maps, Map 724.1.

        PARENTATOR. MEMOIRS OF REMARKABLES IN THE LIFE AND THE DEATH OF THE EVER-MEMORABLE DR. INCREASE MATHER. WHO EXPIRED, AUGUST 23, 1723.

      Boston: Printed by B. Green, for Nathaniel Belknap, 1724. - [2],x,xiv,239,[5]pp. 12mo. Modern calf, spine gilt with leather label. Titlepage soiled and worn; chips and tears at edges repaired; bottom gutter corner torn and repaired, affecting a few letters of the imprint text and border. Moderate dampstaining to first few pages; some light foxing and toning. A good copy. Cotton Mather's homage to his famed and prolific father, one of the most influential men in the history of colonial New England, who died the previous year. It constitutes the earliest extensive biography of Increase Mather, and gives important details of his religious and political activities in Massachusetts. Holmes describes the biography as an "eminently readable work." The book includes an early catalogue of Increase Mather's works. The errata notes that this title was the first work printed by Timothy Green, Junior (1703-63), at the time an apprentice in his uncle Bartholomew's shop and a member of the distinguished Boston printing family. This copy lacks the frontispiece portrait of Increase Mather, which is the second engraved portrait to be published in the British colonies. According to Holmes, the portrait was not originally published with the work and appears "to have been added to special copies, either at the time of publication, or since."

        SOBER REMARKS ON A BOOK LATELY REPRINTED AT BOSTON, ENTITULED, A MODEST PROOF OF THE ORDER & GOVERNMENT SETTLED BY CHRIST AND HIS APOSTLES IN THE CHURCH.

      Boston in N.E. Printed for Samuel Gerrish, and sold at his shop near the Brick meeting-house in Cornhill, 1724 - Second edition. 12mo., 4 p.l., 126 pp. Later red half morocco. Edward Wigglesworth, first Hollis Professor at Harvard, was the son of Michael Wigglesworth, author of The Day of Doom. In 1720 John Checkley was convicted and fined by the General Court for upholding the doctrines of the church of England against the teachings of the New England divines. The appearance of his "Modest Proof"--criticising principles, practices and interests too vital to be ignored--was most disturbing to the Mathers and other leaders, and Edward Wigglesworth was persuaded to write the above answer, to which Checkley in turn replied in his "Defence".Boston, 1724 (Sabin 12362). The whole Checkley controversy is reviewed in Slafter's "John Checkley", 2vols. Prince Society, 1897. This is the second edition, with an explaation of the additions and changes in the preface.

        With the Roads, Rivers, Sea Coasts &c. Actually Surveyed. A New and Correct Mapp of Middlesex, Essex, and Hertfordshire

      London, 1724 - Large hand-coloured engraved map on seven sheets, dissected and mounted on linen, subscriber's coats-of-arms to borders, folding into red cloth slipcase, with publisher's label of James Wyld, rubbed. Following the commercial success of his maps of Northumberland (c1716) and Yorkshire (c1720), Warburton announced his intention to publish maps of all the counties in England and Wales, though in many cases combining several counties on one map. The marketing for his next map, (that of Middlesex, Essex and Hertfordshire) followed familiar lines and on 25th October 1720, Warburton announced that "Proposals are given out and Subscriptions taken in for Surveying and Publishing the Counties of Middlesex (cum London) Essex and Hertfordshire.which it is hoped will be as agreeable to the Nobility and Gentry that have Seats of Inheritance therein, as to those in the Counties already Survey'd, and that their Approbation of the Undertaking will be shown by a ready Compliance in sending their Coats of Arms and Subscription monies viz 16s 6p." By February 1723 Warburton was able to announce the progress of the surveys and the acceptance of over 300 subscribers for their coats-of-arms to be inserted on the map. A further announcement on 2nd November 1723 stated that the surveyor Paylor Smyth had completed his survey,though it was over a year before Warburton was able to announce the publication of the map which now included "in the margin 724 Coats of Arms, belonging to the Families that have Seats and Estates in the said Counties.The Price is Ten Shillings in Sheets, or Twelve Shillings and Sixpence if pasted on Cloth, and coloured."The announcement of the 724 coats of arms (the final production did in fact display 736), caused the immediate displeasure of the College of Heralds who attacked Warburton for the inaccuracy, even non-existence of some of the arms on the Northumberland and Yorkshire maps and even queried Warburton's right to publish arms without a proper authority "not having resided within the Herald's Office for about two Years last past". Despite the stated intention to map the whole country, Warburton carried out no further surveys, though he did announce in 1749 separate maps of Middlesex and Hertfordshire taken from the large survey, which were advertised to include borders of coats-of-arms but which never materialised in this state.The map itself is finely detailed and includes the divisions of the three counties and their hundreds and main roads, whilst the distances between the latter are indicated in miles and furlongs. Further detail includes woods, rivers, wind and water mills, battlefields, marshes and sandbanks. The most impressive feature, however, is the border of armorials of the subscribers, each one keyed to refer to his respective residence on the map. This feature had already appeared on earlier large-scale county surveys, for example Senex's map of Surrey, and had undoubtedly contributed to the success of Warburton's maps of Northumberland and Yorkshire. Whilst Warburton took by far the major part in the publication of the 3 counties map with Paylor Smyth doing the survey, Joseph Bland's part in the enterprise would appear to be limited to collecting subscriptions and the distribution of the published map. With over 700 subscribers it should have been a considerable commercial success. Aesthetically it was very pleasing due partly to the clarity of Samuel Parker's engraving (he was also responsible for the Yorkshire map) but mainly to its impressive size and multitude of armorials, all with references on the map. Each of the six topographical sheets, except sheet 2, contains coats-of-arms, the seventh sheet comprising three rows of armorials for pasting along the top of the map should it be displayed, as was intended, as a wall map. When shown in this way it is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular examples of eighteenth century English cartography ever produced. There were further editions by Thomas Bowles

The Atlas Maior was such a symbol of status that it became the traditional state gift presented by the Dutch government, its prestige derived mainly from the remarkable standards of production involved. After the completion of the atlas, Blaeu turned his attention and considerable drawing talents to an equally sumptuous publication, this time devoted to views of Italian cities and monuments. For quality of draftsmanship, evgraving, beauty of ornament, typography and quality of paper, these images have never been equaled, with the possible exception of Piranesi’s views of Rome. Each is depicted with extreme technical precision, with great esthetic conern for composition. The engravings from Blaeu’s Theatre d’Italie illustrate the highest standard of accuracy and beauty, bearing witness to the excellent craftsmanship of engraver, printer and papermaker in Northern Europe during the Baroque era.
